Leah Klaybor teaches English at Milwaukee High School of the Arts, a public arts high school promoting intellectual growth through creative expression. She enjoys teaching juniors and seniors at the lively, diverse school where students are free to be themselves: dress in a tutu, belt Adele tunes after class, don a fake moustache, and be different. Leah teaches a rigorous, arts-enhanced curriculum and MHSA’s STAR expectations (Safe, Timely, Accountable and Respectful). She leads the data analysis section of the PBIS Team, acts as the School Assessment Coordinator, and chairs the current Hiring Committee. While Leah loves to collaborate with her colleagues in those positions, she also enjoys her responsibilities as the senior advisor: working closely with students, planning events to make their final year special, and celebrating their accomplishments. Leah is excited for the challenging adventure SPA presents and looks forward to spending her life leading urban schools.
